I will be one of the guest children’s book authors at Tandem’s 10th anniversary! gala event scheduled for the evening of March 7, 2019 in downtown San Francisco at the famed Marine’s Memorial Club and Theater. Tandem, Partners in Early Learning provides literacy and family engagement services to Bay Area children and families.
I’m so honored to be invited to participate in next year’s Reading Rock Stars! The Texas Book Festival’s Reading Rock Stars program is a hands-on literacy initiative that sends nationally recognized authors into Title I schools in Texas to inspire young readers with dynamic presentations and send them home with the most empowering experience of all – owning their very own book.
I’ve been selected to participate in this year’s SCBWI SF North & East Bay Holiday Extravaganza, as one of seven authors in the area to have their debut children’s book published in 2018. I’ll be doing a short reading of The Greatest Adventure. I hope you can join.
I’m excited to be signing copies of The Greatest Adventure at the Barnes & Noble in First Colony Mall. I will also do a reading of my book, and a drawing demonstration.
Tony Piedra and Cindy Derby both won prizes at the 2014 SCBWI conference in LA. Now they reunite to tell the tale of their respective journeys from that stage to the publication of their first book! Tony is a digital artist, Cindy works traditionally. Both have great tidbits to share on very different publishing experiences. Let these delightful fellow members give you an idea of what to expect, or lend a new perspective on your own publishing process. You'll laugh, and you'll leave with a good dose of reality and hope.
